This week LeAnne has a very unique sketch for us. It’s a great one for showing off your favorite paper patterns.  In fact, in today’s tutorial, I’ve included a diagram showing you how I cut my paper to fit the sketch.  So what are you waiting for?  I know I can’t wait to see what you create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Three subdued red patterns from the ‘Tis the Season designer series paper collection were selected for this sketch. I went with something very subtle because I wanted the foil leaves to “pop”.  I love the way the gold stag looks against the green foil.

This sentiment, from Merry Moose, worked well with the majestic stag.  Did you noticed the gold bells on the panel? Instead of using Whisper White cardstock, I found a section of the Wonder of the Season specialty paper that featured these bells.  What an easy element to add!
